Yakima DeckHand kayak saddles (supplied as a pair) no. 8004083 - RETURN

Code: REYK8004083

Supplied as a pair - two sets required to carry one kayak.

Ideal if you just need to carry one kayak on your roof.

Impressively simple to fit and to load. You just turn a handle to clamp the DeckHand securely onto your bars. SKS locks can be added for extra security.

Fits most roof bars. The Description tab lists the bars we sell which are unsuitable for this product.

Supplied as a pair - two sets required to carry one kayak.

Please note that this carrier is clamped around the roof bars and therefore will not fit to Thule ProBars (they are too deep), or to Dropracks systems and Thule Slidebars (they are too deep, and they also slide).


  • Felt covered saddles help you slide your kayak onto the roof
  • Flexible mounts support your kayak and also adapt to the shape of the hull
  • Includes a heavy-duty strap to secure your kayak to the DeckHand
  • Includes a bow/stern tie-down strap so you don't need to order this separately - a 'hood anchor' is available separately if your car has no attachment points for bow and stern tie-downs
  • Strap-keepers help keep your straps organised
  • Can be locked to the bars; SKS locks available separately
  • A locking strap for your kayak is also available separately
  • Fully assembled right out-of-the-box and tool free installation

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, if the order is placed before the cut-off time (see above). Some will arrive on the second working day if there has been a "split-delivery". So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
